NV's Superintendent discusses Common Core
School districts across the state are implementing the new k-12 academic standards, known as Common Core. State education officials say they challenge students with a more rigorous curriculum that better prepares them for college. However, some teachers and education experts also criticize the standards as poorly designed and driven by corporate interests.
Nevada's Superintendent of Public Instruction Dale Erquiaga responds to these concerns and explains what this new chapter in education reform means for public schools here.
